Book-signing benefits One Nation charity
A book-signing for One Nation Walking Together will be at the Ghost Town Museum Saturday, May 31 with Celinda Kaelin, author of the recently released
“American Indians of the Pikes Peak Region.”
The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ghost Town is at 400 S. 21st St., behind Van Briggle Pottery.
This is the second book for Kaelin, a well-known specialist in Indian life and history, who was one of the speakers in City Parks' Red Rock Canyon interpretive series last summer.
One Nation Walking Together is a local charity providing humanitarian programs to Native Americans living on reservations.
According to its director, Urban Turzi, One Nation accepts donations of clothing, food, furniture, bedding, housewares and school/medical/hygiene/ building supplies.
“Our volunteers sort, package and load donations onto 53-foot tractor trailers for shipment to tribes and agencies in Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico and Arizona,” he explained. “We receive no support from any government agency or the United Way. We survive solely on donations from churches, businesses, clubs, individuals and fund raising events.”
